I just installed the INJEN CAI last night and all I can say is ... OH MY F*CKING GOD! What a differnce especially in 2nd and 3rd gear in the 4500 to 5500 RPM Range. The sound is incredible. I waited almost a year for the damn AEM that will never come out. I am telling you, this is one of the best bang for the buck MODS available. I paid $230. plus $17.00 shipping and insurance off of Ebay. I got it from California in about 3 days. I decided to have it installed as a short ram after talking to a Toyota master tech and the problems he's seen with installing the full unit up front. He's seen customers who have installed the full unit having engines bogged down with water making the engine stall. I don't need that with the rain we get in Chicago. When I take my ride to Black Hawk Farms Raceway, I'll install the full unit.

$60? Please explain.
You replaced the piece running from the filter box to the engine and it gives the same performance gains as a $300 CAI? Do you have a K&N Filter in there as well? Sorry if these are stupid questions.. but I'm still learning about this stuff.

$60 for a performance/sound gain without replacing the entire stock intake system sounds more my speed. I've been wary of doing a CAI or Short Ram or any of that stuff.. but like I said, I'm a still a n00b and don't know anything about it. :/

EDIT: I guess I should read the GFI thread. /bonks self repeatedly Sorry about that.

Ok, then I fail to see the point of any of it.
Is it all about the sound?
